that - well, i'm meeting with the chief to introduce a program that harvard's doing with the african religion that are practiced in terms of making a bridge between the religion practices for a model for the rest of the country to follow. and i've been concerned about how many officers we have in terms of san francisco continuing to grow in population but we don't add the services we need to think about the number we have is the right number we have not only on 0 daily basis but any emergencies that come on. thank you >> thank you any questions. >> supervisor breed. >> thank you so much for coming before us today. i just wanted to know a spectacular question this is a really important appointment and i haven't received any contact from you and was wondering you are familiar with the office >> i've - i want to apologize to you i didn't realize it was going to be on the 11th and fifth. i stopped by your office to get american people appointment and i got a card i thought i would be able to look at your phone number by you did reach out to the specifies and try to understand their concerns i
it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
insane, their motivation is their perception of their religion. it's an incorrect perception, at least i believe it is. it's a completely deceptive kind of you of the major message of the muslim religion, but it's the message they have taken at it. and the only way, the only way we can stop them if we stop being a democracy. if we stopped respecting the rights of women. if we subjugated women to wear the belief women believe -- belong in society. if we stop believing in god the way we believe in god, and accepted their beliefs about god, to a large extent we would have to get away with our financial system the way it operates. we would essentially have, we would essentially have to change our values to fit their values and refer them not want to kill to that's why they're trying to kill us. it's not about israel and palestine. that's a side issue. it's not about our occupation of anyplace because we haven't really occupied any muslim lands really. it's not like the dispute with communism over economics system, and even a social system. this emanates from their perception of their religio
but it is a perception of their religion. is incorrect? but with a major message of the muslim religion but the only way we could stop them is to stop being a democracy. stop respecting the rights of women and subjugated to where they believe in society. and to except their belief about god and the way the system operates. but he essentially we have to change our values to fit there values to not kill us. it is not about israel and palestine. that is not that issue or the occupation -- occupation of anyplace is not about muslim millions so the dispute with communism over the economic system or the social system it emanates from their. for what the religion is demanding of them. they may get to that because of psychological problems they have but then they are joined with the same motivation. so and abroad since we stopped that? we can't on a smaller level we can try to engage with moderate, a sensible, and mainstream members of which there are many. we can encourage them more to step out. with a totally unrelated story how i think about this, when i was the united states attorney i started to pursue the
and meaningful contact with a person of another race or religion. and then i had another trial after this was done in another jurisdiction that shall go unnamed, and i would say there were maybe 5 percent of the jurors, potential jurors, who had had meaningful contact with a person of a different race or ethnicity and that's really what this is about. one of my least favorite words is the word tolerance because, you know, i tolerate brussel sprouts but if you simply tolerate the diversity that is america, you are going to, you are aspiring for mediocrity. when we have, and this gets back to your question, when we have leaders that embrace diversity and that build a culture that says, you know what, if you want to compete in the global economy tomorrow, pal, you've got to embrace diversity. why does coca-cola write a brief to the united states supreme court and general motors and microsoft on issues of diversity and higher education? because they know if they want to get ahead, they've got to embrace that diversity. if they want to continue to be a fortunes 50 company, there's got
launched an interfaith speakers bureau where we take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been
widespread religion in turkey but it was a secular government where other people could also worship. and we see that being removed lit bill little in turkey. and i hear from turkish friends who are frightened of what's happening. and now this government seems, our government, seems to be on the rock side in each of these disputes. we're out there trying to work with the taliban while they're killing americans. shouldn't that at least be one precondition? would you stop killing our american soldiers that are training your farmers, training your government officials, could you stop killing them long enough to have our talk? because what needs to be done is, you kill an american, we're going to wipe out a whole bunch of your folks. because we are about protecting ourselves and i still feel guilty for 1979, being in the united states army, when we were attacked, it was an act of war against our embassy in tehran, and we looked weak to the world. and it's still used as a recruiting tool. forget abu ghraib, the best recruiting tool is the way we left vietnam. the way we did nothingle to avenge or
in this country. it was an overstatement because in this country with re allowed to practice our religions. however, the one thing i will stand by very strongly is there has not been a single major muslim leader from a cleric to an imam to the president of a country who has come out and said anything about children being pulled out of their christian churches and being slaughtered, nor have you said anything about anything that's happened in the united states. it's time for you all to stand up because you don't have the guts to do it. >> we have to leave it there. thanks for watching. don't forget tomorrow it's our two year anniversary. we'll see you then. special report dock up next. >>> welcome to ""red eye." well boy meets world. well designed, inescapable fun house of horror. let's go to tv's andy levy. what's coming up on tonight's show? >> thanks, greg. those get more and more involved every day? >> i try. >> coming up on the big show, who are the most racist people in america? the answer is racists. plus, you'll never guess the latest justin bieber news unless he guess that he pea p
religion whatever, but they believe it's a life form. i get that. but what i say back is it's not an independent life form. you can't argue about that. it's dependent on the woman. if it's dependent on the mother, then the mother gets to make the choice. at least we can have a conversation and debate about what the dependent life forms what rights they should have. but you can't say it's an independent life form because it isn't. >> a lot of sometimes i can see more of the other side, but in the case of these anti-abortion bills. it's not a gray area. but it's really going too far. to give them credit is going to do us--any time we concede anything they end up taking so much more. so i don't care what you believe. you cannot tell somebody who has gone through a rape or incest or their life is in danger because of a child inside of them that they can't have that abortion. it's inconsistent. >> or if they don't have the financial means to take care of that child. the republicans are saying no social services. you have to pick yourself up from the bootstrap. no money for you bu
to the dirty immigrants with different languages and different religions on the outskirts of town that were going to change everything in episcopalians. he was talking about germans, scafned they'vians, lutherans and catholics. they did transform the culture of minnesota. we're no longer the culture of yankee immigrants who came there from new england. i don't think it made things work. it might have made things better. if you look at the positive aspects of the cull fewer and the people coming to this country. they have a high and growing rate entrepreneurship, almost double over the last several years. they are somewhat more religious than native born americans. they have a strong sense of family. i think that that's all good. we know that immigrants send to be more nationalistic than people who have been here for a long time. they're willing to risk to come to this country. i don't know they're going to change the culture. i don't deny that people in communities that are affected by this incur some difficulties. i've seen it in my home area in the midwest but on balance i think immigrant
: they will be saying i do, i do, i still do. whether it's to accommodate religions or ceremony styles. increasing number of couples are saying more than one set of i do. for nearly-weds, planning for their one, big day, it's difficult enough from picking the perfect dress, to finding a venue to balancing a budget. imagine planning for three. >> this is the dress that i wore to the catholic ceremony. >> reporter: this woman needed four wedding dresses for three, different wedding ceremonies at three different venues. two in california. and one in new jersey. >> we're doing three wedding dresses? >> we are. >> reporter: with a dress budget of $15,000, she said yes to three of the four dresses on tlc's show "say yes to the dress." >> are you saying yes to dress number one? >> yes. >> are you saying yes to dress number two? >> yes. >> are you saying yes to dress number three? >> yes. >> reporter: and as it turns out, ringing in your marriage more than once is a growing phenomenon. >> often times, families with very different ideas of what a wedding should look like, a couple has to decide should i do
of jerusalem in some fashion that gives the two religions a sense of equality. demille tarization of the palestinian state and a deal based on 67 lines accommodations. 63% of israelis support that. i think netanyahu is clever. sometimes too opportunistic, but he's smart. >> he's pragmatic. >> 90% of americans support background checks and can not get that done here. public opinion polls don't always get you where you want -- >> sometimes they open the doors. >> i agree. >> let me ask you, because you talked about the possibility of obama being a transformational president in the foreign policy area. we can go through country by country. back to egypt, what, if anything, should he be doing differently than what he's doing now, which is not very much obviously, to make it come out the right way and assure his place in history? >> well, first of all, not to get overly involved publicly, this is a sensitive issue obviously within egypt and american meddling can be extremely counter productive. people don't like medalers and america has gotten the reputation of beak imperialistic. we h
